Description:

In this article, the writer outlines why it may be said that in both 'Hamlet' by William Shakespeare and 'Death of a Salesman' by Arthur Miller, the families of Hamlet and of Willy Loman drove them to their deaths. The writer concludes that
in the end, the plays both reveal how the environmental stimuli provided by those around us are often the very stimuli which push us into the abyss.

From the Paper:

"In the first instance, the faithlessness of Queen Gertrude, the stern injunction of the vengeful ghost of Hamlet's father and the evil-doing of Claudius push Hamlet towards the commission of a terrible crime that ultimately costs him his own life.In the latter case, Willy's pain at seeing his son Biff fall short of his full potential drives the elder Loman to first melancholic madness and thence to death."
